Are they going to be available... If so, when?

And any chance the flippy version of the proto will get released as an understable counterpart to the Lace?

I have seen Ridges and VPs down in the 140's. Never seen anything else that low from them.

Ah, the me quoting myself was actually about Laces. (there was supposed to be a Steve Dodge quote included)

So my question is, when will Laces in the 150-160 range be available?

Is there a site that is selling the Lace yet? I want to order a couple before it's to late on the initial shipment.

On another thought, just how firm are the firm Soles? Are they just as firm as all the other firms?

Just thought I would add that Marshall Street has recently posted the Lace on their site. I already picked up a couple.

I just picked up two 175 gram X-Link Medium Laces from GottaGoGottaThrow here in Minny. It just snowed here yesterday and is freezing and windy but I still got out there to toss them. The Lace is FAST. Really fast. I would say not quite as stable as my max weight Star Destroyers but that is fine with me because the Lace has much more glide. I was throwing them between 400 and 450 ft. This was in the cold and without a teepad because they were iced over. Huge success for Vibram! Go get a couple people.

I bought a 169gm Lace earlier today (thanks for the heads up Gonnagal). I'm in my 50's and throw in the 300's depending on how it's going today. Is the max weight really easy to throw? Most of my discs are in the 170 range...

I got my Lace today and immediately went to play a round. If I would have used it more often I would have been 2 to 3 throws better. I have never seen a max distance driver that holds a line quite like this disc. More power does not make it flip quite like some of my other discs. The thing floats forever. I had one low shot and looked like I threw it into the ground and low and behold it ended up traveling further than a throw with one of the two discs I am guessing will get replaced by this disc. Simply unbelieveable. I was so hoping to hit an ace with it today simply because it was that amazing.
